A day of strong SW winds and cold, murky conditions. It was very quiet on the land except for large numbers of Swallows and Sand Martins heading south. Seawatching was also fairly slow going but over five hours of watching eventually produced a Balearic Shearwater, four Arctic Skuas, two Great Skuas, a Mediterranean Gull and large numbers of Sandwich Terns. The highlight though was a first-winter Caspian Gull on the beach at the fishing boats this afternoon.
Three Porpoises were feeding offshore.
